Knowledge Brokering for Climate Compatible Development
8 October @ 09:00 - 10:30 UTC+2
As we move towards adopting climate compatible development practices, there is a growing demand for climate information and knowledge that requires a dynamic and collaborative response. However, with the plethora of information available, it is incredibly challenging for decision-makers to access the right kind of information and its applications.
To respond to this challenge, the Climate Development Knowledge Network – Knowledge Accelerator focuses improving access to reliable information and robust methods for decision-makers, urban practitioners and researchers, particularly in developing countries, and to enhance their ability to make well-informed decisions based on high quality, comprehensive data, information and knowledge and share lessons and experience.
The Climate and Development Knowledge Network works as an intermediary between policy-makers and communicators, a kind of ‘matchmaker’ between these professional communities. The program aims to maximize the uptake, use, and collective impact of this knowledge and enhance leadership and collaboration on implementation by assisting actors to become influential champions of the different areas of climate action.
The session will share insights with regard to brokering existing knowledge on climate and development. It will bring together other ‘knowledge brokers’ and forge closer collaborative links between them.
Session participants can expect to:
- Gain an understanding of climate knowledge gaps among key actors and stakeholders
- Explore different formats and approaches adopted for knowledge brokering to address knowledge gaps through sharing experiences and good practices
